In career mode after completing the race in Monaco I decided to switch my gear box because it was at the end of life. Before advancing to the next race weekend (Canada) but AFTER the Monaco race I changed them. Seeing the pop-up about a grid penalty I hit ok thinking race is over so I won't get a 5 grid place penalty. After, thinking about it for a second I decide to go back to the initial gearbox before advancing to the Canadian GP just incase it does penalize me for a new gearbox before the weekend is over. I then advance to Canada and install the new gearbox. Everything should be good now, its the 7th race right? Well, after qualifying I find out I have been penalized 15 grid places. 5 for the swap to new gearbox after monaco, 5 for the swap back to the original after monaco and then for some reason 5 for the new gearbox in Canada.
In reality I should have taken no grid slot penalties at all. The monaco race was completed so I did not change them before the 6 race minimum. I should not have got an additional 5 places for switching to the initial gearbox because again, race over. Should not have taken a penalty in Canada for the new gearbox because its the 7th race.
Race: 6 & 7
